for the sake of the blog


You should know that I risked my life for the sake of you blog-readers today . . . this shot led to a charging hippo and to a nearby shout to me of "Just run!!!" I then sheepishly apologized to folks here for ignorance as to the speed capacities of these lumbering creatures, and for causing some quickened heartbeats :-)

LOL...great shot, Anna, but you need to be more careful! I can't imagine having sights like this so close.

Holy crap! Anna! Don't you know that hippos kill more people in Africa than all the other predators combined? I'm glad you're okay (i.e. not maimed by a hippo) and thank you for such a beautiful scene. The picture rocks!Jack will love it!

Great picture! Had to laugh a bit, glad you weren't attacked for the sake of a photo!!

A hippo!

My fondness for hippos waned a bit when I found out how vicious they are, which is why pandas are now at the top of my list. I don't think a panda would ever chase you and try to eat you...

I'm so glad you're surviving the wild beasts and that you're putting these amazing pictures on your blog. Miss you!
